Internship experience is great, and even better if you work hard

Pros

Eventually received plenty of responsibility as an intern. Excellent company culture and vacation time. Great college graduate/intern culture

Cons

Internship started off slow, management can be overbearing at times. Not hiring very much in the bay area anymore, which is unappealing to new grad college graduates.

Advice to Management

Retain newer employees by giving them interesting and challenging work from the start. Hire more in the bay area for competitive talent

    Good company, but working in the PTD fabs is rough

    Pros

    Working as an engineer in PTD has amazing job security with a decent salary. You are also helping to develop the next generation of computer chip, which is pretty neat in an abstract sense.

    Cons

    There is no real opportunity for career advancement, there are relatively few transferable job skills, work-life balance is terrible (24/7 on-call support), the pay isn't great compared to the number of hours worked or the possibilities at your skill level, and you don't feel like you contribute meaningfully most of the time because you are such a small cog in such a big machine. Oh, and because much of what you do is IP-protected, it can be hard to tell anyone what you've done on, say, a resume for another employer.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what the people on the floor are telling you. Treat your current employees better so that you don't have to keep hiring new ones. Don't pay new hires more than people who've been at the company for several years. Stop setting contradictory and expanding expectations without consultation of the people it will affect. Don't tell us we're doing great and then pay us small bonuses.


  2. Its more important to be seen doing great work than actually doing great work

    Pros

    Company has a great reputation Job stability and many opportunities to move across the organization Good pay and benefits

    Cons

    Big company politics Focal review system is broken Ranking and rating encourages backstabbing Too much effort is spent on making others look bad to make oneself look good

    Advice to Management

    Reward teamwork and recognize good performance instead of just lip-service. Nip excessive politics in the bud
